Claiming the Name of Writer

I did not consider myself a writer until I started working for Hedgebrook.

Chicks Versus Dicks

"Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”—that is the age-old phrase that best explains the seemingly endless battle of the sexes. And while we technically aren’t from different universes, this mantra indicates a truth that we have learned to accept: we differ in more ways than not.

They say opposites attract though, right?

THE BASICS

The differences between sexes are some of the first things noticeable at birth because of our telling…

Is This a True Story?

When you sit down to write, how much is truth and how much fiction? If you’re writing a personal story, should you call it a memoir or a novel?

Or, to put it differently, what constitutes truth in creative writing?

I gave this matter some thought after completing a…

The Kingdom and I: My Plight With Saudi Arabia

Good morning new day in Jeddah. It’s my last week here on this seasonal trip and, as usual, I’m getting anxious about my passport and my return visa. I always get anxious near the end of my trips to Saudi Arabia. Should I make that call and find out if it’s been issued and if I can have my passport back? Does that really speed it up or does it only aggravate? Sheer helplessness is my share as a woman, and as a “foreign” woman, whenever I visit.

What Women Really Want On Valentine's Day

Do women really want a big box of expensive chocolates, a dozen red roses and a bunch of singing Gringos serenading her at the restaurant on Valentine’s day? Not really.
